WVEN-TV, virtual channel 26, is a television affiliate of Univision licensed to serve Daytona Beach, Florida, but with sufficient signal to cover Orlando and Melbourne, Florida. The station is owned by Entravision and offers a Spanish language entertainment format. WVEN takes its call letters from the word "Ven", which in English means "Come". The studios for WVEN are located in Altamonte Springs and the studios are shared by WOTF-DT (owned by Univision but managed by Entravision).
Digital television 
WVEN's digital signal transmits on channel 49 and originates near Orange City.
The station went on the air on September 15, 1988 as WAYQ, a satellite of WAYK (now WOPX-TV) in Melbourne, which had a poor signal in Orlando and Daytona Beach. At the time, the station's transmitter was located near Pierson, the northernmost town in Volusia County. However, while channel 26 would cover Daytona Beach with a city grade signal, it was too far north to provide Orlando with a clear signal.
The stations ran a general entertainment format with cartoons, drama shows, first run syndicated shows and old movies. Nearly the entire schedule was supported by barter.
In 1992 the stations were both sold to Robert Rich to move the stations toward more paid programming. The stations were re-called WIRB channel 56 and WNTO channel 26.
In 1996 Paxson bought WIRB while Entravision bought WNTO, splitting the stations up. At that time, Entravision moved its low-powered Univision affiliate, WVEN-LP channel 63 to the channel 26 signal (which was re-called with the WVEN calls) increasing its viewership across east central Florida. Meanwhile, channel 56 became WOPX and ran Paxson's programming.
